Regaining Focus December 19, 2011

I feel like I should start this blog post with “I’m so sorry.”


Who am I apologizing to? I’m not sure. I just know that over the past several months, I very slowly fell into that horrible thing called “busyness” – you know, doing a lot of really good things that take away from what God’s really asked you to do.

Without going into great detail and creating the longest blog post EVER, suffice it to say, my husband very gently sat me down and said, “You need to stop doing this and this.” I was like, “Oh, yeah…you’re right!”


BAM! Instant re-focus.


The devil’s job isn’t all that hard sometimes. He just sticks a couple thoughts in our heads and then we run with them until our vision is totally blurred and then one day we sit there and go, “So…what was I doing? What am I headed towards? I was passionate about something but I can’t quite put my finger on it…”


I realized that in the midst of doing some really “good things”, I lost the drive (and time) to be intentional about my home, my family, my alone time with the Creator and….the Sparrows.


I’m amazed at how down-sizing the activities of my life has immediately wiped away that foggy feeling of “What exactly am I doing?” and replaced it with “Oh, yes. I know exactly what I’m to do.”


So…here we go. As a leader of the SparrowFly team, I’ve dropped the ball but I’m not discouraged or afraid, because I know there is a passion that burns deep within each of us and it’s just waiting to re-ignite.


Not a sparrow falls without the Father knowing,
